In response to being snubbed by Groove Awards for the second time in a row, Willy Paul has released his highly anticipated single “Digiri.’
The controversial ‘gospel’ singer and his long-standing music archenemy Bahati both missed out on the nominations list, with Willy Paul perhaps the more agitated of the two as he walked out of the nomination gala to express his frustrations.
A month later, he has taken a dig at the awards in his new track -Digiri – which was initially meant to be titled ‘Awards.’
Word on the street also has it that Willy Paul approached two popular gospel producers who refused to record the song before he settled on a reported a little-known producer.
Before releasing the single, Willy Paul announced:
“By releasing this song I know nasaidia uprising artists wote. By releasing this song nasaidia wasani wote wame make it but wanafeel wanaogopa kuongea ukweli about the reality. I ask you all to be strong.. don’t let anyone lie to you.. don’t let anyone use you.. Another thing, the God we serve is a merciful God.. and very understanding
“You don’t really need an AWARD to get to Him, not even a degree.. you just need ur Faith manze.. maombi yako ndio itakupeleka kwake.. So my fellow artist open ur eyes and every other person out there.. kuwa smart!”
The video has been directed by Enos Olik.
